I disabled it to automatically use my rss program, then wanted it to ask again, so I disabled it, now it shows the old (firefox 1.5/7) RSS format and doesnt ask me what program to use.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to rss feed see nice style and asks for program
2. go to preferences and enable the subscribe to the feed using and select a program you have
3. goto an rss feed and it automatically puts in in program
4. goto prefereces and enable Show me a preview again, and goto an rss feed. Notice the difference? If there is any for you?

I can't reproduce this behavior.
